CSE 1105 Course Description


CSE 1105. INTRODUCTION TO COMPUTER SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING (1-2) Introduction to basic engineering concepts. Opportunities are provided to develop skills in oral and written communication, and department-specific material. Case studies are presented and analyzed. Corequisite: CSE 1104

This Course


An easy A IF (and ONLY IF)
– You come to every class – You complete every lab successfully – You complete the written and oral assignments successfully – Do well on the exams



Unfortunately, many students do not make it each term:
– Habitual absence – Playing with their computers, phones, etc during class.

Class Attendance
Experience has shown that grades are directly related to class attendance.  It’s better to come to class late than miss.  I do give pop quizzes, often at the beginning of class, other times throughout the class.


Grading


Strict 10-point scale
– – – – – A 90+ B 80-89.99… C 70-79.99… D 60-69.99… F below 60



Must be complete by the start of your next 1105 class
– Necessary for class participation and attendance taking

Exams
  

We will have a midterm exam, 45 minutes long. The final will be comprehensive and will be 90 minutes long. Makeup exams are possible only in the most dire of circumstances
– Death in the family (preferably your own) – Illness serious enough to keep you out of class requires a verifiable doctor’s written excuse



Don’t even ask to take the final early.

Homework & Lab Assignments
Due at the beginning of the assigned class. This means when the class is supposed to start, not when you get here.  If turned in during class (ie, after I start lecturing), there will be a 25% penalty  If turned in after class, there will be a 50% penalty.  All out-of-class work must be “typed” – handwritten work will not be accepted.


Engineering Notebook


Obtain a paperback engineering notebook from JCEO
– Will be needed by 17 September

  
 



Read the instructions in the notebook Do not use this for class notes You will be using this for your lab exercises. Bring to class EVERY DAY Required if you request assistance from me or from a TA These will be checked/graded
– Details on how to use them later

Ethics

 

 

If you’re still here, I assume you’re honest If I come to believe you are not honest, the UTA Engineering College Honor Code will be enforced. You may assist your fellow students, however, you may not allow your fellow students to copy your work. Unauthorized shared work will be treated as cheating. My general policy on cheating is to push for the student’s expulsion.
